I'm new to knitting and slowly building up my supply collection. I only have 4-1/2 skeins of yarn right now, but see that changing in the very near future because of all of the ideas that are in my had. I also have one set of size 8 single point needles, and then two sets of bamboo needles on the way from Amazon.com (a set of 18 single point and a set of 18 circular) and also plan on ordering some longer circular in the near future. The needles that I ordered were very inexpensive, but I just didn't have the money to spend a lot right now and figure from here on out I can just slowly replace what I need to or add to my Xmas list for Santa to get me a better set.
I am having surgery in two weeks which is why I am stocking up now--- I plan on biding my time with knitting and have a few projects in mind.
Now, to my real question: How would you recommend I store all of this? I don't believe the needles come with any sort of case and I don't know where to begin to find something to keep all of them in. I'd also like something portable to put the yarn in, at least a few skeins, for traveling, going to the hospital, etc.
What would you, oh wise ones, suggest?
